provides response and defense against cyber attacks for the federal civilian part of the government, the domains, last year it responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5,000 cybersecurity alerts to our public and private partners. specialized dhs teams conducted 78 assessments of vulnerable industrial control systems, the possible gateway to a catastrophic attack. the word "cybersecurity" encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from denial of service attacks to the theft of intellectual process to intrusions against government networks and systems that control our critical infrastructure. last year, for example, a water plant for a small town in texas disconnected its control system from the internet after a hacker posted pictures of the facility's internal controls. more recently, cyber attackers penetrated the networks of companies that operate natural gas pipelines. and computer systems in critical sectors of the economy including the financial, nuclear and chemical industries are increasingly targeted. we also face a range of traditi

for the governments in question in europe? it doesn't have to be basically settled by, say, later this month or october. >> when i was referring to measures rather than target, i was clearly focusing on fiscal consolidation. i was not referring to the debt sustainability analysis, nor the debt arising that we set when we design a program. and what we have, we have. 120% in 2020 is still clearly the horizon that is set, to measure the efforts that need to be undertaken by them. but on the fiscal front, clearly, you know, when we recommend that revenues be increased i ask by, for instance, by improving the tax collection, by entering into the privatization program in due course and should have happened and has not happened, when some cuts have to be made in programs that are probably some of the most expensive in the hold eurozone, that's what i mean by sticking to the measures, implementing but not necessarily sticking to the targets in terms of primary deficit number. >> okay, next. >> thank you, madam lagarde. and i am with china tv. my question is on the 2010 reform. you said it is now the

electronically it was as good as if it had been printed by the government printing office, stuck on a truck, delivered over here and then distributed to individual offices. there were other things we did, mandatory webcasting kind would push committee to do that, maximum extent practical. we also as part of the effort to make electronic text available, you know, serve as a place where they could measure our own efforts to comply with 3-d rule. we created docks at in the coming weeks. so far for all of this year that has been on line for stuff coming to the floor. through a lot of good work from our colleagues in the clerk's office. i would expect that would come online for committees early next year. that work is ongoing. looking at the next congress, i don't see the need for a whole lot of rule changes on this front. obviously, we are willing to entertain suggestions but i think we are still in the process of frankly implementing the rules changes we made last time around and 30 evaluating their impact on what we are doing your in terms of our day-to-day legislative business. and

of people after another, will learn to live in peace, learn to build a representative form of government. i would like these representative forms of government, when you said democracy they just think american, jeffersonian model, lots of models. but it's an aspiration for all of us that the people should have a right for self-determination. it's well documented and international accords that we are all assigned to. i hope it will happen in syria as well. we don't quite know how to make it happen in the immediate future. remember, we live with all of the countries in the arab spring for years without those rights being there. we found it necessary to accommodate ourselves to the fact that these were autocratic leaders and it was there people who finally pulled into. not us. still unused that after we saw the problems with moammar gadhafi, within weeks everybody was racing to go visit him in his tent. and then suddenly a little -- things got very, very bad. let's take them out. so each one of these is tricky and difficult. there's no single easy solution that applies to all. >> you want to c

, and was not sufficiently denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment, then hillary put out a significant statement which was followed then by the white house repudiating the american embassy as state income and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president had denounced the attack. but that's not adequate. i may, if the libyan government can't control its cops and its military and devise a protection for a foreign embassy, it's not a government. and we should be denunciatory and we should punish. i doubt there's a single country in the world, in western civilization that wouldn't have immediately called back its ambassador in egypt, still possible, and certainly cut off or put in terms as it related to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states. and i'm sure libya receives money, i don't know how much, but i'm sure it does. it was even greater because the american ambassador in libya have helped the so-called arab spring. i know that the colonists and the times and elsewhere, all over. i said to
